Rapper Dizzee Rascal has sent a number of tweets aimed at Radio 1 which show his anger towards the station.
He suddenly tweeted on Tuesday evening: “Who ever does Radio 1 playlist suck my di*k! I’m tired of you Co*ksuckers you better stop playing me. Make up your fu**ing minds!!!”
Followed up moments later with: “I’m tired of putting up with these 2 faced pricks at Radio 1! If anyone’s got a problem let me know. All this nice guy shi*s dead!”
After hundreds of retweets and a number of replies, incuding one from The Hits Radio saying his song is playing on their station, he continued: “Fu*k Live Lounge! If I gotta keep fighting to get my shi* played why bother doing someone else’s song so you can sell it on ur shitty comp!”
Then finished it off an hour later with: “Going against radio 1 aunt smart but I’m tired holding it down and being a good little nigger. You’re full of shit Bar the specialists.” and “When Americans get played in on radio1 they make allowances for profanity but if it’s coming from the nigger down the road it’s a problem!”
BBC Radio 1 didn’t reply in public but made this statement to RadioToday: “Radio 1 has given Dizzee huge support over the last decade, and whilst not every song can make the cut, we have playlisted three singles off his current album, so we were very disappointed and really surprised to read these comments.”
